I can’t figure out what to write about so I decided to simply explain my life right now. So here it goes.
Cheer: is almost over and I’m really sad. I love this team and they’ve become like family to me. It’s sad to see everyone go separate ways. I’m planning on trying out again next year, but I also am planning on sending in a video for University of Hawaii’s team. They are amazing and I’m not sure I will actually make it, but I figure I should at least try. It would be so cool if I did make it! I’m excited to see what happens
Work: My job at Claim Jumper is going awesome. The people I work with are all really cool and I have a good time when I work there. I feel like I have a lot of potential and that makes me excited. The only part that I don’t like is the working weekends part, which brings me to my next job…I also teach at a small gymnastics place in West Linn. I loved it at first. I’ve worked there almost 3 years and it started out as a great job. But now I feel like it just isn’t what I need to be doing anymore. As much as I love the girls I teach, I don’t get excited to go work there anymore. When I first started working there, it was all about showing the kids love while teaching them new skills. Now it’s become like the military. Ordering them around and critiquing them very harshly. I am so not about that. These kids are like 8 years old and the last thing they need is to be degraded. I try my best to show them that I love them and want them to get better. I try to compliment them as much as I can and critique them with more care than the other teachers do. Something that made me upset actually happened today. One of the girls in an advanced class was working on a new skill and wasn’t quite getting the form right. The teacher who was spotting her went over to another teacher and started talking bad about the little girl. AND THE LITTLE GIRL HEARD HER. She got all quiet and stopped working as hard. It was so sad. I wanted to call the teacher out, but I knew it wouldn’t make anything better. Things like that make me feel like I don’t belong there anymore. I don’t want to be a part of a place that makes girls feel insecure. That’s not the right way to treat younger kids. And I don’t like it at all.
School: I registered for classes today. I signed up for freshman inquiry, business, and statistics. I wanted to sign up for 3d design to but it was full :( Oh well. I’ll try again next term. I am really excited for winter term to be over. I get tired of classes really fast.
Other: Getting the tattoo as soon as I get a weekend day off of work. I can’t wait :)
Today I went to my old high school to request transcripts and on my way out I ran into my old best friend. It really bummed me out. Neither of us said hi or even attempted eye contact. She used to be someone I would run at anytime I saw her…and I don’t know how we got to this point. oh wait, yes I do. It got here because I tried to look out for her and keep her in the right direction with her life. aka not getting wasted and making out with other girls. And for some reason, that makes me a bad friend. I don’t get it at all, but that’s how life is I guess.
alright I’m tired of writing. New post will come in a day or so
